Award-winning author Dani Atkins to introduce new novel at Bishop’s Stortford library
Award-winning romance author Dani Atkins will introduce her new novel, The Memory of Us, at a special event at Bishop’s Stortford library.
She has won the RNA (Romantic Novelist Association) Award three times and her books are sold in 20 countries.
Born in London, she now lives just outside Bishop’s Stortford with her family.
Dani became a full-time writer after working in a school for 20 years and has won praise for emotionally-charged stories exploring the intricacies of human relationships and the power of love.
Her debut novel, Fractured, won immediate acclaim and has been followed by best-sellers including The Story of Us, Our Song and This Love.
The Memory of Us encourages readers to look at the key themes of family, love and sacrifice. The narrative draws from her own experiences where a heart attack during lockdown led her to consider her own mortality and the pain and anguish that comes with that.
In the book, protagonists Amelia and Lexi are inspired by Dani’s relationship with her best friend and the bonds of sisterhood, especially at times of trauma.
Dani, who is in her 60s, will talk about The Memory of Us at Bishop’s Stortford library in The Causeway on Thursday February 15 – the day the novel is published. The event begins at 7pm and ends at 8.30pm. Tickets cost £5 each.
The Memory of Us, by Dani Atkins, is published in hardback by Head of Zeus (Aria) and costs £20.
